Psalm 18:28-29 (New International Version)
28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
29 With your help I can advance against a troop [a] ;
with my God I can scale a wall.
What more is there say?
We need God.
Without Him we can do nothing, with Him we can do anything. You want happiness? Turn to God. You want to be successful? Turn to God. Deeper faith? Better relationships? Better grades? Turn To God.
We need Him.
This is something that we should not, and cannot, deny. In every area of our lives we need to let God in, give it up to Him and let Him work through us. I can’t stop from thinking, “If King David knew that he needed God, then why shouldn’t I?” I haven’t decided yet if this is a good way to look at it, but I’m being honest, it helps to put it into perspective for me. I can tell you from experience that if you give God control over something in your life you will notice a big difference! I can remember not feeling as stressed about certain things. It gave me a feeling of peace that God was in control and He was going to work though me. No longer was it me trying to work though me (that thought alone makes my head spin), but it was God working though me.
God’s own Heart + My heart seeking after God’s + Me giving up control of my life = God working through me
My heart + my thoughts + my control = (absence of God) chaos
Give it a shot. Give God control of your life and seek after Him! It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. Meet Him in His word Daily, pray daily, and make it a habit to turn to God for everything!
